The concept that all parts of the survey process be integrated in a coherent manner, the results of one part of the process automatically giving information to the next part of the process. The Blaise system is an example of integrated software in which the specification of the Blaise Questionnaire gives rise to a data entry module as well as CATI and CAPI instruments. The goals of Integrated Survey Processing include the one-time specification of the data, which in turn would reduce duplication of effort and reduce the numbers of errors introduced into the system due to multiple specifications.
